The Minister of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport, the Honourable Olivia Grange, has expressed profound grief at the death of young footballer, Dominic James.

The St George’s College student collapsed shortly after the start of his school’s Manning Cup game with Excelsior High at Stadium East yesterday afternoon (Tuesday).

Minister Grange said: “Like the rest of the country I am very sad to receive this news. No one expected this. Young Dominic, by all indications, had been doing well. He represented his school well. He was the captain.  And had a very bright future. So this is quite a shock. All of Jamaica will mourn with his family and with his school at this time. We all must keep them in our prayers and in our hearts.”
